You must log in to watch this webinar recording.

In this webinar, Drs. Tim Speicher and Regis Turocy, leading experts in the application of Positional Release Therapy (PRT) for treatment of post concussive syndrome, will discuss the principles and applications of PRT for treatment of post concussive syndrome. The presenters will discuss how and why PRT is helpful in the treatment of post concussive syndrome and will explain essential releases for treatment of this condition.

 

Timothy E. Speicher, PhD, ATC, LAT, CSCS

Dr. Speicher is president of the Positional Release Therapy Institute. He is considered a leading expert in positional release therapy (PRT). Speicher discovered and developed the fasciculatory response method (FRM), which has revolutionized the way PRT is applied, practiced, and taught. He established the Positional Release Therapy Institute to provide education on the FRM and PRT through the institute’s courses while allowing for its application to a patient population at the institute in Ogden, Utah.

 

Speicher frequently speaks on PRT to professional organizations and at conferences, and his research has been published in academic journals. In 2014 he received the first-place award for outstanding manuscript on evidence-based concept mapping by the Athletic Training Education Journal, published by the National Athletic Trainers’ Association (NATA). In 2013 he won the journal’s first-place award for outstanding manuscript on case-based analogical reasoning.

 

Speicher, who has held several faculty and research appointments at various academic institutions, is a member of the NATA and was on the board of directors of NATA Research & Education Foundation. Currently, Speicher holds two faculty appointments: affiliate faculty for the University of Idaho, where he teaches neuroscience for the master’s degree in athletic training program, and assistant professor at Rocky Mountain University of Health Professions, where he provides instruction in evidence-based medicine for the doctorate in health science.
